    While the stock calendar widget is great, it is limited in the size selection. I am looking for a good calendar widget that looks nice, provides multiple size options, and syncs with a task application like Astrid. Currently I use the stock calendar widget (that takes up a full screen) and have an Astrid widget on another screen.

    It would be nice to have a widget (preferably free) that does both (or it can sync with a different task management app if someone has a better one than Astrid).

    I know about the Pure Calendar widget and that seems to be the highest recommended one, but are there any others? Thanks.

    I use Smooth Calendar for its three-line widget that replaces the HTC Calendar widget. I like it quite a bit and haven't noticed any problems.

    +1 on Smooth Calendar. I tried half a dozen or so and this was the clear winner, at least for my work flow.

    I have been using AgendaWidget. Lots of widget size options. I will have to check out SmoothCalendar though, havn't heard about it until just now

    Will SmoothCalendar integrate with Task apps like Astrid or others?

    I'm using pure calendar. It integrates with HTC calendar, but I don't know about astrid.

    Not sure, I don't use any task managers. For calendars, I've got Smooth and all the stuff that comes with the DInc. I've erased any other calendars or add-ons I've tested in that space.

    I've been using the free version of Calendar Pad and am very happy with it

    I use a 3X2 "Agenda Widget" on my main home screen to tell me my upcoming events.

    I use a Month and Week widgets from Calendar Pad on other home screens, with color coded calendars. Calendar Pad is my default calendar as well, it is way better than the stock calendar app.

    I use Jorte ToDo&Memo Widget (there's also Horizontal, Monthly, ToDo, & Weekly, I also use Agenda Widget (there are a lot of choices from 2X2- 4X4).
    I tried Pure for some reason I wasn't a fan.

    Just search and play around and find one that you like the best. Another reason why I love the 24 refund period.

    Can anyone tell me is these add on calendars will sync with the Outlook calendar the way that the HTC Calendar does? I need it to sync with outlook, but don't really like the layout,etc.. of the HTC calendar.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I use the Agenda Widget. I like the options and it pulls in Astrid as well.

    Does anyone know if Remember the Milk will sync with my calendar? I can't seem to find an option anywhere.

    SmoothCalendar on the home page and the stock calendar on the next page.

    Is that a 24-hour refund on all apps, through app brain or market? How do you initiate a refund? Thanks!

    Go through the market. You have 24 hours in which to initiate a refund. After that all sales are final.

    From the Market, visit the My Downloads page and select the app you would like to return.

    Then apps that are eligible for a refund will be marked "uninstall and refund"

    Also note that apps can only be returned once, if you purchase and app, then uninstall and get a refund and download it again you can't return it.

    Remember the Milk syncs with Astrid and Astrid syncs with the stock Agenda widget, this is what I used.

    I don't believe RTM syncs with the stock agenda widget though...

    i'm gonna try installing astrid and see if i can get it to sync. when you say stock agenda widget, do you just mean the calendar? i don't remember seeing anything about an agenda widget, just agenda view.

    Yeah my bad, i did mean the stock calendar with agenda view. When you create a task in astrid it asks if you want to add to calendar.

    Not sent from an iPhone...DINC!

    Seems to be working, awesome and thanks.

    So what's the point of having RTM then if Astrid does the same thing and is free? The only upside I see is that you can set locations so when you're near your task it will remind you. I do like that, although I never hear the stupid "moo" in the car... :rolleyes:

    I use astrid (linked to Remember the Milk) for tasks, the system calendar (linked to google cal) for events/appointments and currently use the Agenda Widget to view them in one place on my home screen. It is awesome for this purpose. However, when clicking on an event, it doesn't seem to take me to the calendar for some reason. I can click on tasks and get to astrid though. Is this a issue with the widget, or a prob with my settings? Given the amount of settings, it wouldn't surprise me to find out I missed something. Pure Calendar looks interesting to me if it would fix that one problem.

    I have been using Jorte. I think that's how it's spelled. I works pretty good.

    I use Business Calendar and love it. I can view my calendar and my wife's all on the same calendar. I am red and she is purple. We always know what is going on with each others schedule.

    They do have a free version you can try. I got the paid version for free from Amazon's daily free app. It costs $5.51 otherwise. But if you check amazon every day, they give away a paid app for free each day.
